Luxury wedding planner + designer based in New Orleans. Personalizing traditional, yet custom + timeless, yet modern weddings. Named Martha Stewart’s Top Planner 2014
When I started Tying the Knot from my bed in the sorority house, I had countless dreams for what I wanted my new little company to become. I was shooting for the stars, but I never thought to shoot this high. I have been honored by Martha Stewart Weddings as a Top Planner for 2014- a list filled with planners who first inspired my love for weddings and who’s books are sitting on my bookshelf. A list that now features my little company that I started from my bed in the sorority house.
I am shaken by just how far my company and I have come before our 4th birthday! We’ve watched 91 brides walk down the aisle to meet their grooms and developed incredible relationships with our creative partners who have now turned into friends. We have been named The Knot’s Best of Weddings for 2013, 2014, and 2015 and Brides Magazine’s Wedding Planner to Know in 2013. We’ve had weddings published in 4 national magazines, 13 local magazines, and have been featured 42 times on various national blogs. Yet among many other milestones, none can compare to receiving the biggest honor of my career- being one of 63 wedding planners throughout the country to be named Martha’s Top Planner.
While I am incredibly proud, I am also so incredibly motivated to live up to this title and to prove that I belong on this list of planners who are creative and talented beyond belief! I will not let Martha, my clients, or myself down and I will continue to prove that all it takes is a little personalization and a whole lotta’ love to plan amazing weddings! Challenge accepted, Martha! Bring it on 2015!

In honor of this lovely couple being featured on Glamour and Grace last week, you’ve gotta check out their wedding in action through their lovely Mason Jar wedding film!
I’m going to start by saying that it is absolutely insane, yet so incredible to be on this side of wedding planning! Jack and I got engaged in May and we couldn’t be happier to make our almost 10 year relationship official by tying the knot! Poor thing had to be patient as we got through the rest of our Spring and Summer wedding seasons, but he has been patient as can be and now our planning is full steam ahead!
What a wedding! And one of my favorites to date!
Dara and Nate tied the knot at the ever-so-interesting Marigny Opera House, an old church that’s been turned into an event venue– and it’s amazing, might I add! Then add in an even more amazing bride, a groom who just adored his lady, a great story, her phenom sister who did the flowers, and some amazing talent behind the camera to capture it all (Mark Eric)… and you get this gorg soiree!
Pure art, this dress!
And I can’t even explain to you how perfectly this bride was poured into it! It was one of those make-you-gasp kind of moments when she walked in the room! No wonder she had her man in tears when she walked down the aisle!
Oh man… What a dress!!
This one goes out to all you lovers of classic, timeless, and elegant beauty! This stunning bride had one of the most gorgeous weddings in one of the most iconic buildings that we have to offer in LA- the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge! It was the kind of wedding that you look back at in 50 years and still love every single thing about it!
I can’t even tell you how beautiful this couple, this family, and this wedding was!
I’m pretty sure the Ritz has never been so sparkly, and that includes the sparkle in the eyes of one of the happiest couples I’ve ever met! I mean, just super stunning!
